Rising Joy by Vicki Matheny
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in him, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15.13
Do you have a friend or spouse that knows you so well that it is funny, sometimes scary? They will finish your sentences or you can tell what they are thinking just by looking at them? It is a situation that is not common with everyone.
Just think how well your Creator knows you. He created your inner being and knit you together in your mother’s womb, Psalm 139.13. He knows you better than you know yourself. He understands what makes you tick!
If you believe in him, he is the God of hope that can fill you with all joy and peace. The more your faith in him grows, the more hope you will have, to the point that you will have an abundant supply.
I am thankful that I do not have to produce this hope on my own power. This abounding hope is powered by the Holy Spirit, whose power is unlimited. He will never suffer a power outage.
Do you believe in God? Does your hope and power come from him?
